- Independent cinema from China in coperation with Fanhall Studios, Beijing
Curated by Marina Foxley and Zhu Rikun, founder of Fanhall Studios.
Directors talk part 01 "Fanhall Studio spreading the spirit of independence in Chinese cinema" offers an introduction into the role of Fanhall for a new critical cinema in China.

- Urban Research Themed Programme on Urban Development and Public Space
Curated by Klaus W. Eisenlohr
Urban space is under rapid change. The city has long played a predominant role in the work of artists, the city as image, as ideal, as Moloch, as source of joy and social destruction, and not least as icon of Modernity. With the increased dynamic of city development however - either as Shrinking Cities or exploding Megacities - more and more artists take up the issue of urban development and adopt urban space and public space as their theme.

- In Focus Wolf Kahlen
Curated by Gallery KMZA.
A closer look into the work of one of the earliest video art pioneers.
